Announcement: Spring is Allergy Season
Spring brings a variety of health concerns, including allergic reactions to airborne pollen and asthma. Each spring, tiny particles known as pollen are released from trees, grasses, and weeds. Pollen is transported by wind and when we breathe them in they can trigger an allergic reaction known as Pollen Allergy or Hay Fever. During an allergic reaction you may feel a number of uncomfortable symptoms such as sneezing; nasal congestion; coughing; itchy and watery eyes; runny nose; itchy throat; itchy skin; hives; fatigue; irritability; and allergic shiners (dark rings under the eyes caused from restricted blood flow near the sinuses).
